When Ica, Chinca and Pisco had the huge earthquake last year, with some 3000 people killed, several americans came down here and set up a group to rebuild 400 houses. Bro Layton (ex mission president from Palymra New York) and several of his friends are down here building houses. They go back and forth to the U.S. They are amazing. Jose Aleson, our welfare director for the country, and his family live by Molicentro where we used to shop in a fantastic house. They are in our ward. When I first got here he came to me and said my assignment was being changed to 1/2 Welfare. I had been down here 4 days, but I told him no. Since then he has been courting me and he is a great guy. We will see if I end up helping them some. Maybe, if I can get PEF in a better place. Great meal.
